Olsen is as steady as they come and QB Cam Newton is going to have to target him a ton with the lack of depth at tight end.
Gates is a declining player, but he is a sneak TE2 option against a Cardinals D that was the worst in the league at stopping fantasy tight ends.

Tight ends seem to fare well against Lovie's Cover-2 scheme.
